But by 1995, Shadowy Men on a Shadowy Planet had split up. The former members went on to other projects: Diamond and Pyle joined forces once again in Phono-Comb, while Connelly worked with Neko Case's Boyfriends and Atomic 7. In early 2001, Diamond passed away after a battle with cancer.

Like most indie bands of their era, the Shadowy Men cut a fistful of singles before they made their first album, and with 1988's Savvy Show Stoppers, the trio managed to turn the former into the latter. The album compiled the tracks from six 7" releases the band had put out between 1985 and 1988, and despite the piecemeal construction of Savvy Show Stoppers, the tunes cohere surprisingly well.
